Hi everyone. Last night my son popped by with a surprise. I had ordered some items from Joann's and he had gone down to the US mailbox and picked them up for me. Isn't he sweet??!! :)
So I HAD to make a card today using one of my new "toys". I saw that the challenge this week at Merry Monday was to make a card with a tag.
And I thought this stocking would fit perfectly on a tag ... and it did. :) I stamped it, coloured it with Copics and fussy-cut. It's popped up on a "falling snow" embossed, stitched tag. I stamped the sentiment onto a small scrap of card stock and added it at the bottom. Since I used a scrap, I'm going to head over to the Snippets Playground and join the fun! :)
I kept this CAS by just having the tag and image. I did add a little wink of stella to the ribbon and holly, which doesn't show in the photo above. I'll include a close up below so you can see a bit of the sparkle.
We've been having the BEST weather the past few days. Sunny, warm, breezy ... just perfect. I actually went out and watered the front yard today. :) I need to get moving more. As some of you know, I had knee surgery back in January, after taking a spill and tearing my quadracept tendon. Rehab is going well, but I'm still a little a bit scared about walking around outside where there is uneven ground. I need to get over that. :)
